Can you reference mass & center of gravity at sketch level?

This is my first post on this forum, please excuse me if this should be placed elsewhere.

 

I am trying to find a value for the mass moment of my component (Mass*CoG) where the centre of gravity is the distance in the Y direction from the origin. I want to use that value to drive the length of a sketch so that I can use it as a sensor in a Design Study. Essentially, I am trying to optimize the part for rotational balance, where the mass moment must be within a certain range.

 

I have tried driving the this from a design table however it will not update the sketch during the study (the value for mass moment remains the same, whilst the mass and center of gravity are changing).
